Reply To: Tax Credits – HB Start Date query…


Sorry, but unless I have misread your post I don’t see where the problem is?

The first example you have given is the way I am calculating CTC.

I can’t see why you would want the period/amount of CTC to reconcile with the HB period. To give an example but not using CTC ….

Claimant recieves a private pension of £5200 pa = £100 pw, the HB period however is only 26 weeks. You wouldn’t say “he gets £5200 pa but as the period is 26 weeks his income should be calculated as £5200 divided by 26 weeks so assess on £200 pw”.

Again, I apologise if I’ve completely got the wrong end of the stick here – it is Friday 😉
